This luxurious desert resort was built with adobe bricks typical of Arabian
villages and tents similar to those of the Bedouin.
The lights are solar-powered and, as the 45 tent come rooms have en-suite showers instead of baths, you can have a unique swim in the desert by splashing in the clear, cool pool.
The rooms and bar have a marvelous desert view. Little has been sacrificed to luxury however. The restaurant has a fine German/ Namibian cuisine with fine South Africn wines. Sossusvlei Lodge is a wonderful holiday destination on its own.

Airstrip Transfers: A "Welcome" reception at the Sossusvlei Lodge airstrip with drinks and wet cloths to freshen up before proceeding to the Lodge. Special settings by arrangement for unique occasions and product launches.
Sossusvlei Excursions: An early start from the Lodge to enter the Namib-Naukluft Park at sunrise, while the temperature is still mild and when the dune contrasts are at their best. You will travel in one of our all-terrain URI Gameviewer vehicles, custom-built in Namibia for the Lodge, with your own specially trained guide who will share all his knowledge of the area, the animals, the plant life and much more with you. Regular stops are made on the ±60 kilometre drive down to the Vlei to gain information or take in the vistas. At Dune 45, the more energetic have the opportunity to climb to the upper ridge of the world's most photographed dune. Further along, a gradual 2,6 kilometre round-trip walk up to Dead Vlei is a must for the healthy visitors. Spend time in Sossusvlei before returning to the Lodge approximately 5½ hours later in time for luncheon. Refreshments are provided on the trip.
Nature Drives: Guided nature drives in our comfortable all-terrain URI Gameviewer vehicles on the 44 000 hectare expanse that make up our private reserve. You will experience a relaxing drive through pristine nature where Oryx and springbok wander freely on the property. Spectacular photographs present themselves at every turn during this excursion of approximately 4½ hours. Refreshments are provided.
Sundowners: Depart from the Lodge in the late afternoon on a leisurely drive out onto the Lodge's private reserve. Watch the shadows lengthen as your guide takes you out to a panoramic location where sundowner drinks will be served as you relax and watch the spectacular sunset. The inner tranquility that a desert sunset imparts while you sit amongst nature is really something special.
Guided Sunset Walks: The guided sunset walk starts at the parking area of Elim dune. The southern part of the dune is climbed and the dune valley is then followed for approximately 1,5km. The dune is then crossed again in a northerly direction and the walk continues on to the quiver tree sundowner spot at the mountain range to the north. The desert sunset is awaited and enjoyed over a sundowner drink while taking in the beauty of the dunes and desert plains. After sunset, guests are driven back to the Lodge. The sunset walk covers ±10km. A shorter 5 to 7km route is currently being investigated.
Hot Air Balloon Flights: "Up, up and away" as you sail silently over the reddish dune sea of the Namib. Add an exhilirating dimension to your visit to the desert. A daily activity for individuals or groups, weather permitting, run by Namib Sky Adventure Safaris. There are three balloons available accommodating a maximum of thirty passengers.
Eco-Quad Biking: A wondeful and different way to view the local surrounds. Exhilirating yet eco-friendly, the fixed quad biking trials have been meticulously laid out on the Lodge's private reserve so as not to interfere with the indigenous plant and animal life. Visitors follow the guide and may not deviate off the trails.
The Quad Bike Breakfast Run is for the person who wants to experience something different and is specifically geared towards those who still want to travel on to their next destination the same day. Currently, the sun rises at ±06H00, therefore this trip starts at 05H45. It follows the shortest route on easy terrain to the Tsauchab River and arrives at the destination in time to watch the sunrise. Once there, your Guide unpacks the picnic basket and sets a 'table' (of petrified mud which resembles a flat table top and even offers 'seats' too). This breakfast location is stunning with a 360° view of the rising sun over the mountains, on the dunes, on the golden grass plains and on the mountains. simply breathtaking! On completion of the breakfast, bikers follow a slightly different direct route back to the Lodge over easy terrain.
Desert Scenic Flights: Desert Air have a well-maintained 6-seater Cessna 210 light aircraft permanently based on the Lodge's property along with an experienced pilot who also doubles as a trained "aerial" desert guide. A number of routes are available on request and include 40 minute trips to Sossusvlei and longer round-trip flights down to the coast. The latter excursion provides wonderful aerial photographs of the desert with its 'sea of dunes' as well as unforgettable views of the numerous shipwrecks along the so-called "Skeleton Coast" of Namibia.
